Northern Irishman adds Friday’s Senior title to already won Junior crown

ANDREW Brady claimed his second win of the week in Friday morning’s slightly delayed Senior Manx Grand Prix.

The Northern Irishman for Roslea added the visitisleofman.com-sponsored title to the Junior crown he won on Monday, despite the damp conditions around the north of the course which had caused a half-an-hour delay to proceedings.

The Martin Bullock Manxsport rider and second-place man Grant Wagstaff provided a grandstand finale to the four-lap contest, jostling for the lead with the former winning by just 3.66 seconds at the finish.

Shaun Anderson had looked to be set to claim third, but he retired on the final lap in Ramsey giving Manx sidecar ace Dan Sayle the opportunity to land the last podium place, 1 minute 48 seconds down on Wagstaff.

First man on the road Michael Sweeney came home fourth, Andrew Farrell and Stephen McKnight completing the top six.

Ramsey’s Glynn Jones came home an impressive eighth behind late starter David Milling in seventh.

Racing concludes this afternoon with the combined Classic Superbike and Junior Post Classic, which is due to start at 1.45pm.

Full reports on both races in Monday’s Examiner.
